I have found this book exceedingly helpful in keeping a right perspective when I do not want to see the joy in any situation. I am doing my internship at a hospital and the first week I was really struggling to see why the Lord had me here and I was not feeling useful. Then I was reminded of the things I was learning from this book! Thinking over what all I have read in it, I quickly realized that no matter where I am or what I am doing, my joy comes solely from Jesus! So the Lord has been my joy giver and now I feel true joy each day I go into work. This book has taught me so much about how to find joy from Jesus no matter what situation you find yourself. The author uses excellent life experiences of his own to show how the Lord has sustained him with Joy through all circumstances. I recommend you buy this book!

Having benefitted from watching S.M. Wibberley’s walk with Jesus over the past 35 years, I was delighted that he has recorded what he’s gleaned from hours and hours of scripture meditation and practical application. S.M. Wibberley’s walk with Jesus took him first into the spiritual darkness of Alaska’s barren islands in his twenties and then to the dogmatism of middle eastern Islam for the past 3 decades. He and his wife and their two sons, have consistently lived in the most difficult of circumstances all of their adult lives and yet S.M. Wibberley has lived in evident joy and in victory.
Recently, my wife of 33 years read S.M. Wibberley's book, Knowing Jesus is Enough for Joy, Period! and then led a ladies study through it. It has noticeably impacted her as well several of her friends. Watching her, I have become convicted when I begin to complain because now, after reading the book, she virtually never does. While she has always been an encourager, with what she has learned and applied from the book, she has taken building others up to another level. And in the midst of our very full life of ministry, she sees the positive at times when disappointment could come easily. Personally I am ready to embark on my second reading to bring the refreshing truths back into focus.”
